Today's episode regarding a late-teen and his family, who are on the show because the family is concerned that he might be in a gang.
On stage, the teen openly admits to killing 5 people while in the gang, one of which was an 8th grader who he claims to have shot "4 or 5 times."
One of which involving removing the brain and throwing it around the room.
He also claims to have participated in rape, robbery, and drug dealing.
His family reacts to all of this "shocked." But....so much of this seems unlikely. The families reaction feels too ... fake. Either this whole show is staged, or the family (or just the teen) is faking because they want to create drama.
I have had similar feelings about past episodes.....
What do you think?
